Friday, April 19
I woke up feeling fresh and ready for four days of doing nothing much. I went for a walk with the Flaming Lips ep Onboard the International Space Station in my earbuds. It has a bit in the middle where it sags a little, or not depending on your mood, but There should be Unicorns and the end song We A Family, where Miley Cyrus walks “onstage”, lifts it up again.
They recorded it for Record Store Day in 2017, and I have always liked it.
After brunch we drove to Pellinge where we sat waiting for the ferry to arrive. To our surprise we noticed that the bar had opened.
We let Sunshine out and loaded all the food into the fridge and then decided to go to Benita’s to fill our water cannister. We knew Benita’s would open tomorrow for the Easter Market, or we thought we knew, and therefore found ourselves surprised to discover it not only the bar closed but the taps on the beach without hoses or water.
We therefore headed back to Tirmo for water. We crossed on the ferry again and, lo and behold, we filled our cannister from the fully functional tap.
After this, and since the Tirmobaaren had opened and we have forgotten to bring food with us, we stop for chips and beer. We see Ville and Margit, and Irma sees two people connected in one way or another to her work. I look very carefully at my beer and wonder why it tastes as it does. Either I have forgotten what beer tastes like or this beer doesn’t taste like I want it to.
We will get on the ferry for a third time and spend the rest of the afternoon setting everything up and getting the house working. I will move things from here to there, put the bikes where they should go, and set up the chairs and table on the terrace.
Having done all that we will then sit outside on the terrace drinking ice cold cider in very warm weather.
No meal? We will eat sandwiches!
